Mundane, mental, dental, floss floss floss!

This morning I went to the dentist to get my stitches out from the tooth pull. They also did a full set of x-rays and a probing, which I likened to noshing on a hedgehog. The good news is that the rest of my teeth are doing pretty good. There are a couple of broken ones, but they've been broken for a long time. We also discussed the filling-the-space options, and the recommendation is an implant rather than a bridge, because the rest of the teeth are in pretty good shape.

After that, down to the Oxboro clinic for the giving of the bodily fluids. They were seriously backed up, so it took longer than anticipated, but I still have blood and I can still pee in a cup, so all was good. I really didn't get the pee-in-a-cup thing as much since I've never had to do that before there, but maybe they got some fancy new pee-detecting gizmo in the lab and they have to justify the expense or somesuch.

The thing I don't like is that it's a fasting test, so I couldn't eat or drink anything except water, and I woke up this morning with a killer headache that has just now started to settle down.

I got some paper yesterday. This may not be exciting to you, but I'm all over paper, and I was out. Now I have a brand new box of paper for my printer, which makes me happy. I also have some aluminum plates that were machined for a project at work but were rejected and were going to be recycled. Instead, I am recycling them for my own nefarious schemes, which I shall go into at a later date.
